The hotel staff was not able to communicate well and what we mentioned on booking.com was not given to us. The room was very small nd suffocating..... When we asked them to give any other room they ignored totally... Will never recommend this hotel to anyone huhhhh

To be fair, the hotel was quite lovely and quaint. That being said, the staff do not communicate very well in English, which normally is not a problem if you don't have to deal with any issues. My issue was that due to some serious jet lag, I forgot my passport at the front desk (staff did not remind me... More

Spent a very pleasant week here, beginning October, just out of the High Season. During the High Season things are bound to be different. Located on a very quiet minor street in a quiet area. No traffic, few pedestrians. Large areas in Istanbul are closed off by movable bollards, keeping the traffic to the dual carriage ways, which are grid... More

There wasn't anything particularly bad here but there wasn't really anything good either... except the location perhaps. The breakfast was lacklustre and had flies all over the place, lots of random mediore things on the buffet which ran empty pretty quick. The style was not really too offensive but pretty garish and old fashioned. The one weird thing were the... More

This is a small hotel not far from the historic centre of Istanbul. Tram & subway in 5-10 minits by walk. If you also want to enjoy the side of the city with less tourists and with more local/domestic restaurants and shops you can reach them in 5-10 min walk. Rooms and all assistance are perfect. Authentic design but quality... More
